Athletic Therapy Clinic

Athletic therapists assess and treat all manner of musculoskeletal issues. If you’ve injured a muscle, bone or joint, then athletic therapy could help you.

PERFORM's Athletic Therapy Clinic delivers prompt and professional care to staff and faculty, students as well as the general public. The clinic is a fully functional treatment centre with the very latest in equipment and modalities, including Swim-Ex for aqua therapy.

The clinic is staffed by athletic therapy internship students and supervised by certified athletic therapists. Upon arrival at the Athletic Therapy Clinic, clients are met by a student intern who gathers information on medical history and performs a physical evaluation in order to arrive at a treatment plan. Each plan is overviewed by a supervisor who ensures that all appropriate tests and enquiries have been made. Only once a proper course of action is identified does treatment begin.

The clinic is also involved in developing community-accessible athletic therapy programs and research studies. In doing so, it provides clients with the opportunity to contribute to — and benefit from — the highest quality preventative and therapeutic care.

Aqua therapy

Using a SwimEx 700 physical therapy resistance pool, clients are treated with isokinetic aquatic therapy and rehab. The SwimEx pool is located in a separate area within the clinic, with a private changing room and shower. The resistance pool has adjustable platforms for depth, adjustable water current and water temperature control. There are two viewing windows on either side of the pool, should filming or observing the activity be needed.

Common uses for the aqua therapy pool

  • Post-surgical rehab
  • Strengthening and conditioning for low-mobility clients (i.e., arthritis, multiple sclerosis, stroke, etc.)
  • Intense strengthening and conditioning for athletes

* Certain criteria must be met for eligibility for aqua therapy. Please contact us for further information.

Biodex isokinetic testing

Isokinetic testing is an ideal method to determine the true force output of a muscle group after an injury or surgery, and is an effective tool to help determine safe and effective return to sport or activity. It can also help to identify where the weaknesses are in a range, and therefore help the clinician design a proper program to help improve performance.
